    I recently upgraded from windows 98 to windows xp and this is my second day of using xp. The first day i used it my cd-rom and cd-rw drives worked fine. Now neither of them work. The drives are the sony cd-rw crx140e and the BTC 48x IDE CD-ROM Drive. I am getting this error: Windows cannot load the device driver for this hardware. The driver may be corrupted or missing. (Code 39)
    does anyone know how to fix this problem or have a download link for the drivers necessary to fix the problem. System restore is a last resort since i've installed/downloaded a ton of things today and yesterday.

    first thing is try uninstalling the driver, then click on scan for hardware changes to have the driver re-installed.

    If that doesn't work go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Class\{4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-0 8002BE10318}] Click on file then export save key as savedkey.reg then remove upperfilters if you have it and lowerfilters type is REG_MSV Then go to device manager remove the hardware ie cdrom drive, then click on action and then scan for new hardware/hardware changes and then it finds it and sorts it out
